To those who have seen the California Honeydrops and heard Lech Wierzynski sing and play it may come as a shock that the young frontman was born in Warsaw, Poland. The son of Polish political refugees raised in Chicago and Washington DC, Lech was exposed to wide range of musical influences. “When my dad was growing up in communist Poland in the 40’s and 50’s, old American music was illegal and therefore very cool,” he says. “He passed on the love of old stuff to me: everything from Louis Armstrong to Sam Cooke.”
About the JAS Summer Music Series: The LA Times called this, “One of the best lineups of summer concerts in North America.” Crowds by the thousands enjoy Rock, R&B, Soul and Latin performers. Bring your picnic blanket and lawn chairs, pack a picnic or purchase food from vendors on site, and sit back and enjoy the show. Alcohol available for purchase on site, you may not bring in your own. Kids activities are plenty with a House of Bounce, Betty Hoops, face painting and more! Dogs and their owners may enjoy the concert from a viewing area on the side of the hill.
